What a disappointment. Final score: Colts 26, Giants 21. I’m not so disappointed in the Giants, as I am in the officiating. While a lot of people will focus on that play near the end of the game in which a non-existent interference call was made against the Giants, I felt the whole game was officiated poorly.
Another example? Peyton Manning goes back and completes a pass to the one yard line. If you listen to the audio you will hear the fans at the stadium gasp just before Manning releases the ball. And if you look to the right of Manning, you will see and offensive lineman holding onto the collar of Umenyiora. Was a penalty called against the Colts,… No, interference against the Giants. Earlier in the game, two questionalble calles against the Giants’ Burress.
My prediction is that within 3 weeks, sports writers will be reporting on the “poor officiating” around the league.
